The Roook!!!

Hello, it’s been a while. Allow me to get back in great style by showing this quite satisfactory game of chess that I played. Start with the best by test.

  1. e4 d5
  2. exd5 Qxd5
  3. Nf3 Qd8
  4. Nc3 b6
  5. d4 Bb7
  6. Be3 e6
  7. Bb5+ c6
  8. Ba4 h6
  9. O-O Nf6

Already here things start to get weird, as I am trying to test out a new more aggressive style since my latest blitz games have been a bit boring.

  1. Ne5 Be7
  2. f4 a5
  3. a3 b5
  4. Bb3 a4
  5. Ba2 Nbd7
  6. Qd3 Nd5
  7. Nxd5 cxd5
  8. f5 O-O 18.

Here’s where the pressure starts being more concrete, castling allows the start of the attack and all my pieces are about to point right at the black king.

  1. Rf3 Nxe5
  2. dxe5 Bc6
  3. Rg3 Kh8
  4. Qd2 Kh7
  5. Rf1 Rc8
  6. Bb1 exf5
  7. Rxf5 g6

And it was in this position that i sacrificed, you guessed it, THE ROOOK. PLAYING C3, THE BISHOP COMES ALIVE, AND HE CANNOT TAKE BECAUSE IT IS MATE IN 9!!!

But the sacrifice is taken anyway, allowing the mate to be on the board.

  1. c3 gxf5
  2. Bxf5+ Kh8
  3. Bxh6 Rg8
  4. Bg7+ Rxg7
  5. Qh6+ Kg8
  6. Qxg7# 1-0

Never take rook sacrifices if the opponent has spent more than half a second on them is the moral of the story.
